The editible MP4 version (what I usually use) wasn't recognized as a valid MP4 file. The streaming DSL RealMedia file couldn't be found. Anyone else having any problems with it?

I downloaded and tried the mpeg2 version yesterday
which played okay.

new tests of your links
1. real media link
OS used Linux and link was at
http://www.archive.org/stream/sIvanBes1938_2/sIvanBes1938_2_256kb.rm
which was a 78 byte file with this streaming URL
rtsp://movies02-bu.archive.org/1/movies/sIvanBes1938_2/sIvanBes1938_2_256kb.rm
mplayer did not work with this new stream url.
then tried xine and vlc which failed
hxplay
rtsp://movies02-bu.archive.org/1/movies/sIvanBes1938_2/sIvanBes1938_2_256kb.rm
playback started but no video seen unsure reason

2. editable mp4 example
used wget to download file
wget http://www.archive.org/download/sIvanBes1938_2/sIvanBes1938_2_edit.mp4

played back using mplayer -nosound
played back using vlc.

good luck

I have just watched it just now, streamed in Real and had no problems...

Hope it resolves itself for you.
